About MadMax

MadMax is a carefully designed and purpose built activity centre, which has been used for corporate team building events since the early 1990’s. MadMax benefits from a 4×4 track, clay shooting ground, extensive quad trails, and an archery range. In 2013 MadMax relocated to the opposite end of Kirknewton Estate to a new, larger site with a purpose built access road. MadMax is situated 30 minutes from Edinburgh city centre, 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport and 40 minutes from Glasgow.
